Destination: Hightop Hut
Total Miles: 897.8
Did some nice miles today, and avoided the rain yet again despite hearing thunder off and on throughout the late morning and afternoon. Caught up with Footloose, Lovebug, and Dead Man Walking at the shelter, which was a nice way to spend the evening after a day that didn’t have any views, new wildflowers, or wildlife other than a couple of deer who were very unafraid of me. Let’s check in on "Mountain Man’s Shenandoah Speedway Wildlife Scorecard" to see how things are going so far inside the park:
Fabulously attractive hiker girls: 1
Black bears: 0
Those numbers aren’t looking too good.
